New Agreement between JRI-Poland and the Museum of the History of Polish Jews in Warsaw #general

Stanley Diamond <smsdiamond@...>
 

We are proud to announce the signing of a new 8-year agreement on promoting
research and education between Jewish Records Indexing - Poland. and the Museum of
the History of Polish Jews in Warsaw.

The new agreement expands the relationship of the two organizations to promote
research and to educate those interested in their family history and the rich and
historic culture of Polish Jewry, which dates back almost 1000 years.

Under the new agreement, the Resource Center at the Museum will have special access
to the JRI-Poland database and website. Museum staff will educate visitors and
respond to their questions regarding the database and provide guidance to Museum
visitors on the next steps they can take in their research of family roots in
Poland.

In 2010, the two organizations signed a cooperation agreement linking their
websites. The Museum's "Virtual shtetl" portal commemorates and includes research
resources for more than 1,800 Polish towns. JRI-Poland has Jewish record indices
from the birth, marriage, death and census records for the Jewish families that
lived in many of these same towns. By using the two websites together, researchers
are able not only to obtain names, dates and sources of family records from
JRI-Poland, but are also able to learn about town histories >from the Museum's web
pages.

The Museum of the History of Polish Jews documents Jewish experience in Poland -
from the early settlements ten centuries ago, to the modern revival of the Jewish
community.

For the Board of Jewish Records Indexing - Poland

Great Grandfather Charles WOODS/WOODINSKY from Minsk #belarus

Marcy Zaslow
 

Hi:

I am trying to figure out how do research for my Great Grandfather who was born
in Minsk 20 May, 1862. What I do know is that he was in living London by at least
by 1880 as that is when he married my Great Grandmother Hannah Woolf. He went by
the name Charles WOODINSKY and later shortened it to WOODS here in the US(Boston).
His Hebrew name was Zadok and his father's name was Eliyahu. Can I search
Belorussian records?


Regards,

Re: Seeking genealogy help in Volozhin for MELTZER family #belarus

Edward Meltzer <edmeltzer56@...>
 

I am trying to confirm my family ties to Volozhin. My ggf, Lazer
Shmuliov Sklut-MELZER (b1871) came to America in 1910. His passport
referred to him as a Volozhin city dweller. His brother, Aron MELZER
(b1874) came to America in 1904. Their father's name was Shmuel
Yakov. But I cannot seem to find any other information regarding
their marriages or births or existence in Volozhin. I assume there is
a relation to the Sklut family as well, but I don't really understand
the hyphenated name as shown on his passport. I would appreciate any
education, recommendations or suggestions that can help me identify
the relationship to the Sklut family or their birth or marriage or
parents records.

Thank you.

Need translation for a German transcript #galicia

Caroline Curvan <Caroline.Curvan@...>
 

I've just posted a handwritten copy of what I believe is the graduation
transcript for my great Uncle David Zinker. He earned his Doctorate
in Chemical Engineering >from the Deutsche Hochschule in Prague.
While I would love a complete translation, I'd really like to know the
following:

1. What was his dissertation about?
2. Is there any mention of the secondary school he attended?

I have just found one of my families on a 1888 Vileika Family List. They are
reported to be living "since 1889" (first mystery) in Ianovshchizna vil.

Anne,

Original name of this locality was known in Polish as Janowszczyzna, currently is
known as Ivanovshchizna in Belarus at 5422 2645, not too far >from Vilejka.
BTW, Iwanowszczyzna was not a village but a large farm, in Polish described as as
"folwark" (German "forwerk").
